Frank Skinner Book and Novel

Frank Skinner - Author


Frank Skinner performed his first stand-up gig in December 1987, and four years later went on to win the prestigious Perrier Award. During the 1990s Frank established himself as a major name in entertainment - both in live comedy and on television. In 1994 and 1997 he sold-out two UK tours, the second of which culminated in a performance at London's Battersea Power Station - what was then the largest ever audience for stand-up comedy in the UK. On television, Frank has created and starred in a succession of hit comedy shows, including nine series of The Frank Skinner Show from 1995 to 2005; and with his comedy partner David Baddiel, Fantasy Football (1994-2004), and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned (2000 - 2005).

As well as live stand-up and television, Frank has attained three number one hits with the iconic football anthem Three Lions alongside David Baddiel and the Lightning Seeds. He has starred in the West End in both Art and Lee Hall's Cooking with Elvis; and his critically acclaimed first book Frank Skinner was the bestselling autobiography of 2002, spending a total of 46 weeks in the Sunday Times bestsellers' list. In 2006, Baddiel and Skinner's world Cup podcast caused an online sensation with over one million downloads, leading to yet another number one chart hit.

In 2007 Frank Skinner returned to stand-up with another sell-out tour of the UK.

Frank currently divides his time between London and Birmingham - and, of course, his beloved West Brom.
